Absolutely. If you have an electricity plan with different time of day tariffs you can program your electrical appliances like dishwashers and washing machines to use electricity during low tariff periods. 

The Australian Government’s energy rating site, is a fantastic resource for understanding the energy ratings of appliances, making it easy to find the most energy efficient models for your home. 

You can start saving electricity today by: 

  • Using your appliances when tariffs are lower
  • Turning off lights that aren’t needed
  • Reduce your use of clothes dryers, particularly vented units
  • Increase the temperature of your air conditioner by one degree. 

Time of use tariffs operate in the following ways: 


  • Peak period – 4pm to 8pm.
  • Off peak – 10pm to 7am.
  • Shoulder – 7am – 4pm and 8pm – 10pm weekdays.


Electricity will be cheapest in the off peak period, and most expensive during peak.
